The First and Second World Wars were two of the most catastrophic events of the 20th century. This book is part of "The World Wars" series, which examines all aspects of these wars in detail, from origins and battle fronts to life at home and in the war zones, the technical developments, the peace and the aftermath. The book is an analysis of World War I, which contains numerous photographs, together with contemporary quotations and short biographies of some of the leading figures of the war. The text examines the reasons for the conflict, its steady progress to the stalemate on the Western Front, the collapse of Russia following its revolution, the entry of America into the war and the final peace settlement, leading to the signing of the Armistice Treaty in 1918. Stewart Ross has also written "A Medieval Serf" in the Wayland "How They Lived" series and "Columbus and the Age of Exploration" for the "Life and Times" series.
